Where The #$@% Is Jack In The Mix?
OK the set list is great, tremendous cover of Richard Thompson by Darby, etc. Where is Jack's bass? I must need better speakers. Were they getting ready for the later bass-less versions of JS by keeping Jack inaudible?
I am used to Paul Kantner's guitar being low in the mix in his various bands, but why have Casady if you can't hear him?

My buddy, who was Prarie Prince's "guy", says listen for the broken kick drum pedal in this show. He had to run out to the truck for a replacement. Bonus points for catching the restoration of same. All in all a nice show but it does come off a bit flat mix-wise. Still there're high points and worth the listen and archival burn if you're so inclined.
For the earlier reviews and the bemoaning of "things not sounding the same"...F'er cryin' out loud it IS a different band. Things change, members quit, get old, die, all that stuff. It's like Fantasy Island around here sometimes with people griping about bands "changing". Did you really think they were going to stay YOUR favorite lineup forever? Enjoy it, or don't if that's your gig, or go listen to something else, ya' macaroon. Better yet, put on a scratchy copy of After Bathing At Baxter's, Bless It's Pointed Little Head or whatever and groove with Grace and Marty 'til your heart is content. "The war's over Lebowski. The bums lost". Arf arf!

This show is a cool example of JS the new generation when they still had Jack on his inimitable bass. And with Papa John it is a treat for JA fans and Tuna fans as well as followers of Herr Kantner's opi.
Check out the BATE suite for Jack's playing. Sometimes in this period he was all THUMP THUMP, very minimal new-style bass, but here he is more animated, like the so-called lead bass he pioneered way back sometime

Without Marty and Grace, it just doesn't seem like the same band
First off, the sound level is pretty low and you'll have to equalize it. That said, even though everyone is trying real hard, it doesn't sound like the same band. The only thing that sounds familiar is Paul's rock star gravelly voice. I still like hearing him on this. He is working the hardest to bring it all together, but as a lead singer he doesn't exactly have the grace of well... Grace, and Marty. Some may remember Darby and she works real hard here, but in all fairness, I think most fans memories of the Airplane are of Grace, not Darby. And I like Marty so much I can't imagine the band without him either.
There are some highlights here with America, Volunteers, Saucers, Wooden Ships, but Blows against the Empire is ambitious and just doesn't quite come off well. A lot of the rest I don't like really at all. I don't see myself listening to this very often. But there are a number of other GREAT shows on the Archive for JS and even the Ambassador Gallery show with Marty is good.

This is one of the best of the "new" Jefferson Starship concerts that I've heard, maybe the best. No Grace, but Papa John is here. Excellent performance, very fine sound quality. Glad to hear Blows Against the Empire done live. This is a must-have for Starship freaks.
